Welcome. I hope you find smiles, inspiration and a sense of connection in these posts about my creations, thoughts and adventures.

I'm a Cross-Disciplinary Artist finishing up a Small Business Venture Program at Conestoga College, Kitchener, Ontario. This blog follows the journey of the last few years and maps out a story of a search for belonging. I am passionate about applying arts principles to business endeavours and business principles to artistic endeavours.

    Two images and almost 30 years in between. You’d think that 30 years of traveling through a life experience would have lost my paintings/journals along the way. I have lived in over 20 places.

    Throughout time, I’ve lost most every thing except my artwork and journals. Over the years I have found so much as well, more intangibles though.

    Today I’m at the point where I would’ve been when I made this painting. I was about to leave for the West Coast. Here, today, at this point, I never would’ve believed that 30 years later I would be across town in a beautiful apartment studio and ready to launch my business after a course at Conestoga College.

    Then, I did not have the love surrounding me that I do today. I was grieving the loss of my first child. Love was not tangible as it is today. Love felt so far away and the supportive family and friends as well. I had put up walls around my heart and it took 30 years to melt them down.

    This is another students work. We did some expressive work earlier experiences in her life and then brought in some animals from First Nations symbols . We my intuition and the accuracy of the visual language, we worked through the painting in a visual way so that the pain was able to be transformed and the feeling of flight and happiness came from the painting after all.

    Boxing has always been a foreign world to me. But here I found myself in the middle boxing mania at the Total Man Show this past weekend. We put up a booth to convert digital images to Art using the filters available and then printing them out for people.

    I don’t know much about boxing and so I thought that Syd Vanderpool’s picture was the one that I painted but it was his brother. So I change the face to be Syd. People said it still didn’t look like sick because Syd boxes loose. Also I did not make the skin tones as dark it should be so I’m reworking that painting to sell at the club.

    All in all it was a good experience and I was happy that we went. It was an adventure, a challenge, and was good to meet and overcome. The best part about it was working together as a team with very talented people who supported me.

    Another student work that combined two pictures into one. It was illustrating the power to let go. Learning to trust in the flow of life.
